I decided to ask around a few brands to see what products make-up artists most regularly call in to use on celebs, shoots and runways – if they can’t live without them, how can we?! Funnily enough, I haven’t ever used most of them (amending that, stat).
So here we go, kicking off with Clinique:Most Requested: Clinique Air Brush Concealer
Apparently, this is the product that won’t stay on the shelves at Clinique for its ability to banish all known dark circles! It’s £17 HERE and comes in 4 shades.
Over at Illamasqua, Cream Pigment in Hollow is loved by make-up artist who use it to contour. It’s £17.50 HERE.
Guerlain’s hot product is Terracotta Four Seasons in the Nude shade (above) for a healthy, all-over glowy finish right before the catwalk. I’ve really had to trawl around to find somewhere that has it in stock, and it’s HERE reduced from £46.50 to £38.75.
Over at Origins, No Puffery Cooling Mask for eyes apparently is the thing that many make-up artists request for erasing the morning-after-the-night-before on their models! It’s HERE for £21.Most Requested: Givenchy Mister Light
No surprises… another concealer! This time, it’s Givenchy Mister Light to forgive and forget those dark shadows. It’s £23 HERE.Most Requested: Maybelline Mega Plush
At Maybelline, the most requested product from make-up artists is Mega Plush Mascara for sky high lashes. It’s a gel-mousse formula which means it doesn’t dry on the lashes and flake-off.. important on a long shoot, I should imagine. It’s £5.99 HERE.Most Requested: DiorShow Blackout Mascara
And, finally, over at Dior, Diorshow Blackout Mascara is the one that everyone wants! It’s £23 HERE.
So there we go.. I quite like the idea of having a make-up bag full of stuff the experts love.

I just bought that mega plush mascara and it’s absolutely incredible!! The first time I used it I actually took some off because I was just going to the store and it looked like I’d put false eyelashes on! Don’t get it wet though, it runs like crazy, a waterproof version would be amazing.
Love this post – I always enjoy ‘inside information’ posts and articles! Thanks Jane x
I actually like all you have got here Jane! But what I like the most is the “Guerlain Terracotta”. I think I’m falling in love with it..:D
Love this type of post, so interesting and different!
ooh you have a good mix of drugstore and high end products here – looks like I should check out mega plush

Aw now I want the Guerlain four seasons!!
I’m interested in the Origins Cooling eye mask…. Not that I have particularly puffy eyes, but it’s novel so I’m automatically drawn to it. and the Guerlain Four Seasons is so pretty, damn. I wouldn’t be able to justify using it when it’s that pretty!

I love the no puffery eye mask, I keep it in the fridge and it is a great fix for a late night and/or hangover!
